THE Blob is killing on The Masked Singer – and fans reckon they've worked out who it might be.

While the true identity of the Blob remains hidden, eagle-eyed viewers have a hunch its Lenny Henry.

Who is the Blob on The Masked Singer UK?

It's not been confirmed who is behind the Blob mask on The Masked Singer.

But fans, who have been compiling clues for weeks, are convinced that it's comedian Lenny Henry.

Lenny, 62, famously promotes Premier Inn in telly adverts – and the Blob is even coloured in the hotel giant's purple and white colours.

The third performance provided a real clue for fans, with the Blob singing Hotel Room Service – a possible reference to Lenny's Premier Inn adverts.

And to top it off, the Blob's costume is in Premier Inn colours of light and dark purple.

Another ran Twitter fan ran with the clue that Blob was named after their doctor, tweeting that Lenny was admitted during an appearance on Louis Theroux's podcast that's exactly what happened to him.

Lenny is in fact officially called Lenworth and was named after a Dr Lenworth when he was born in Dudley, Worcestershire, in the late 50s.

One tweeted: "One of the clues last week was he was named after a doctor. Go look at his Wiki, first line, named after the doctor who delivered him."

Other celebrities in the running to be unmasked as The Blob include comedian Romesh Ranganathan and Pointless star Richard Osman.
